Keep Trying!

Burn me in the strongest fire, put me in the deepest hole. Strike my temple with a wooden pole; skin me, spice me, feed them my glaring bones.   Cowards, go run your books, live the dirty little tricks you know. “Yes, sir!”, “No, sir!”, “My pleasure, ma’am!” “M’amour!”, “Mon ami!”, “Mon petite mademoiselle!”   Whip my heart and clock… Read more →

Another World

Shade of the grim!

As the night falls, my eyes go dark, as the night falls, I say with a heavy heart, as the night falls, shall fall thee, Cause when it comes to survival, I ain’t losing my spark.. I haven’t spent my days alone burning to die, I haven’t walked a lonely path to reach an a dead end, I have talked… Read more →
